    "Tierra Bonita has some innovative ways of teaching. Technology is the focus at this school with 1:1 iPads for all students 3-5. Because technology is the principal's focus, other very important foundational skills are left behind. Reading is not a focus at this school!!! There is a need for quality reading material (real books) at this school. Some teachers are very good but others need to be do the minimum to get by. Technology is good but overshadows everything else."

    "The focus at Tierra Bonita is on 21st century learning with a large emphasis placed on personal responsibility and leadership skills. Our staff has worked hard to create engaging and meaningful lessons that will empower students and produce problem solvers who will be college or career ready when they finish high school. I love being a part of the learning at our school!"

    "The principal at this school is very involved and genuinely seems to care about the school and the students. There are some very good teachers, but also some poor teachers who have been at the school too long and should retire. Parental involvement is high, but almost to a fault - helicopter parenting runs rampant to the point that I think the students will grow up to be spoiled and entitled (for example, parents are asked to clean up after art lessons, rather than having students clean up after themselves), and I am weary of the constant solicitations for donations to the school. The school's test scores are above the district's average, but this is probably attributable to the demographics - there are more educated and affluent parents, and few English as a second language students, which will naturally bring up the average."
